Starr Adkins is Shooting Again

 


When I invited Starr Adkins to do this New Year show with me I knew she  would just blow my band away. Starr has been trying to put together a band of her own for a while now, but it is not too often she gets to play with guys like my crew. when she walked it the room I could see it  on everyones face . We all start giving the eye to each other. So after we found a few tunes we could do she grabbed the mic. and it was ON! 

  She is as close as you can get to a Blues diva as I ever worked with and it seems she is getting better the older she gets. 

  We found a few tunes we could do but there is so much more to get at with this woman . I would love to do a project with her in Southern Soul and Old School Blues originals. 

  I invited her to do a valentine show with me at the New Ebony Club ina Triana Al . I will be willing to give her a show of her own like a complet set or two for that show . I think it  is always a treat to have a lady like Starr to work with . Stay tuned ..If you know Starr tell me what you think about her show in the Comments below.

  

Merry Christmas !

  This is really an odd Christmas for me . My kids are finally all grown up and so far I dont have any little folks to play Santa Clause for . It a different feeling not to have to perpertrate and slip around and play games with them or myself. Im going out to the bar and sit around with all the other folks that got no real need to run home anymore. 

  I had a good friend and fan stop by the club from Rome Ga. He is a preacher and a good piano player too , we all gathered around the piano and sang some old hemns and Christmas songs . It was so healing for all of us. I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and remind everyone what the day is really all about. I don't think iv'e heard anything about my brotha JESUS during the whole season. But when Rev Dodson came in to visit it was like putting everything back in perspective .Its been a cold day and tonight its warming up with friendship and chilling with old friends at SUDS.

Lowe Mill Concert on the Docks !

  we had a blast out at the mill last friday night. It was my first time going to a show at the docks , usually im performing somewhere else and dont get a chance to make it . The folks there really do a great job with set up and accomidatons and everything. I was impressed with how well the handle things . Evan was the head guy in charge and he was so easy to deal with . We even had a chance to eat before the show at on of the little cafe places there , I think it was called the Happy  Belly or something like that . The food was good. 

  I am always so critical of sound and stage set u and stuff like that since i have to do my own road mgr for now. the Mill folks just jumped right into it . You can tell that they do it every week. The fans that come there actually come prepared to see a good show . They bring all their lawn chairs and their beer coolers  and cameras and blankets . Its really a lot more organiced than i thought . I would love to play there again and would recommend it to anyone looking for a night out. Check our Lowe Mill.
